Happy Fourth of July! The forecast is holding up nicely for all your outdoor activities this long holiday weekend. Temperatures will be running a few degrees below average for our inland neighbors, while at the coast temperatures will be very close to average. That means no sweltering heat for anybody. Well, it will be hot in our deserts, but that is to be expected.

Low clouds and patchy fog will be around through the overnight and early morning hours, however, those clouds should peel pack to the coast by mid-morning. Clouds will hug the coast during the firework shows, but the cloud bases should be high enough as to not obstruct your views. Inland will see clear skies.

HOLIDAY HIGH TEMPERATURES

Coast: Low 70s

Basins: Mid 70s

Inland Valleys: Upper 70s/Low 80s

Inland Empire: Upper 80s/Low 90s

Mountains: 70s

High Desert: Low 90s

Low Desert: Low 100s

WHAT’S AHEAD

A few areas of low pressure will pass by to our north keeping our temperatures close to average or a few degrees below average through the weekend and into early next week. By the middle part of next week, a ridge of high pressure builds in from the south giving us a warming trend that will push temperatures above average by several degrees for our inland communities. The coast will see temperatures close to average. No rain is in the forecast.


In the end, we're estimating the coast and valleys will pick up between .25" to .75" of rain, possibly a little over an inch if some of the heavier rain tomorrow or a thunderstorm actually makes it to the ground.  

The mountains, above 7,000 feet, could pick up 6-12" of snow.

It appears this storm is out of here by Thursday late afternoon-early evening.
